About Erin

Hi All! My name is Erin, and I am a biology major at Elon University in Elon, NC. I tutor undergraduate students and area high school students in biology, chemistry, and other more specific science courses (genetics, biodiversity, population biology). At one point in my college career, I was a secondary education major with a concentration in biology (high school education) before switching to a purely biology degree. I have shadowed many teachers in various high schools in the Burlington/ Alamance public school system; through this I have taught classes, created and graded labs, homework assignment, and tests, and helped struggling students. I have also been a college lab TA for 2 years in general biology and biodiversity classes.

Typically for high school students, I like to first find out what the student does know about the topic before figuring out what they don't like/ are struggling to understand. I also tend to create lesson plans based on how each individual student learns best: do they learn best by listening, working with something physical, etc. From there, we work on understanding what they don't know and what they want to know. Having taken a few education courses and from shadowing, I have learned creative ways to best explain difficult topics in science.

Currently, I am heading into my senior year at Elon. I have a strong GPA and am an active member in biology club and a few honor societies (tri-beta and pi gamma mu). I play varsity soccer for the school as well. I greatly enjoy tutoring/teaching and might pursue a career in which I can help others in the future.
